National Church Residences Celebrates Grand Reopening of Hoover Place

June 18, 2024

DAYTON, OH ­— National Church Residences recently hosted a ribbon-cutting for the grand reopening of Hoover Place, celebrating a $9.2 million renovation of this community for low-income seniors age 55 and older. Hoover Place is a 144-unit apartment complex for independent living, featuring a mix of one- and two-bedroom floor plans. The three-story low-rise features amenities including a community room with a kitchen for resident social events, a library and activity/game room, a private patio and walking path, as well as easy access to public transportation.

“When we purchased this property in 2017 from St. Mary’s Development Corporation, our intention was to preserve this affordable senior-housing community long into the future. Many partners have joined us in making this intention a reality,” said Susan DiMickele, president/CEO of National Church Residences. “Thank you to all our partners who joined with National Church Residences to improve and continue this community that has graced this neighborhood for more than 25 years.”

Financial partners who made this renovation possible include The Ohio Housing Finance Agency, The City of Dayton, 5/3 Bank, CREA and Aetna/CVS.


“This is a home and that’s what we want for seniors,” said Dayton City Commissioner Christopher Shaw. “We want folks to age in place among family and friends, a place to socialize and make meaningful relationships, and that’s what we have here.”

“CREA believes that opportunities are the same place that you call home,” said Declan Coyne of CREA, an affordable-housing investment company. “We are proud to work hand-in-hand with a host of partners who believe the same, not just in creating new affordable housing opportunities, but also in rehabilitating and improving those affordable housing options to further support residents,”

“When individuals have housing costs they can afford, they have more resources available to better manage their health and wellbeing, especially older adults who may be managing chronic conditions,” said Anne Crees, regional vice president public and labor segment of Aetna, a CVS Health Company. “We will continue working alongside our regional and local partners at Hoover Place to find additional opportunities that help to support and uplift the residents as they begin this exciting new chapter of their lives.”

“Fifth Third is proud to invest in our communities to address the need for safe, affordable housing,” added James Carty, market executive at 5/3 Bank. “Calling Hoover Place home will help residents thrive.”

Nestled in a country-like setting on the outskirts of this city, the community was constructed in 1999 through Low-Income Housing Tax Credits to create affordable housing for older adults. The recently completed renovation included a refresh of all shared public spaces and updates to apartment homes that spanned new cabinets, countertops, flooring, lighting and energy-efficient appliances. The architectural design was developed by long-term partner Berardi Partners from Columbus, Ohio. Construction was overseen by Cincinnati-based Model Construction Inc., another long-term partner.

National Church Residences has had a presence in the Dayton area for more than a decade, currently managing nearly 800 units of affordable senior housing at 10 communities in this region. The organization also is currently renovating Grand Place and anticipates renovations to be completed this summer.

Originating from a Christian commitment of service, National Church Residences provides an array of health care services and a variety of housing options to more than 60,000 older adults at more than 360 communities. The nonprofit organization is driven by a vision to scale for mission impact by advancing better living for 100,000 seniors by 2030, wherever they call home. The organization also offers a variety of additional senior living options, home- and community-based services, as well as permanent supportive housing for the formerly homeless and disabled.
